Megan Miller is an artist and illustrator, speaker and advocate for people with Asperger’s Syndrome/Autism Spectrum, and others with sensory issues. A prolific artist from the time she was a small child, Megan has striven to express, in her art, what it feels like to deal with a world that while beautiful and wondrous, can be overwhelming, incomprehensible, and at times, cruel, to people with differences.

On Monday, May 15, at 7 p.m., Dover residents Megan Miller, and her mother Deb Miller will speak at the Dover Public Library. Megan Miller is an artist and illustrator, speaker and advocate for people with Asperger’s Syndrome/Autism Spectrum, and others with sensory issues. A prolific artist from the time she was a small child, Megan has striven to express, in her art, what it feels like to deal with a world that while beautiful and wondrous, can be overwhelming, incomprehensible, and at times, cruel, to people with differences.

Over time, Megan has learned that it helps to be direct, that through speaking engagements, she can educate others to make the world an easier place to understand and navigate. Using her artwork to illustrate, Megan presents a fascinating, personal and compassionate look at how people on the autism spectrum think and feel.

Megan's mother Debra will also present a look at her journey as a parent with an autistic child: observing early signs, getting a diagnosis, and how she assists her adult child with Asperger's/high functioning autism.

The program is free and open to the public.
